Does Hulu work in Mexico: here’s what to know

Hulu is an American streaming service that provides the ability to watch its content on a subscription basis. This streaming platform belongs to The Walt Disney Company. Originally, Hulu was a syndication service. In 2011, Hulu began producing original programming, which led to the growth of its popularity through exclusive content. Beginning in 2014, their development began to gain new momentum. This was due to the fact that they began to offer various shows in the comedy genre for viewing. Among them were such parodies as “Hot Wives”, “Dorm Curators”, and the next year’s “Complicated People. Also, among their content was content that really caught the public’s attention: Golden Globe-nominated comedy “No Obligation”. In addition to the comedy genre, they also released a number of original drama series. These include: “East Los High” launched in 2013, “11.22.63” and “The Way” both released in 2016, and 2017’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”. Hulu also owns “The Mindy Project”, and “Nashville” available for viewing. The former moved to them from the Fox channel and the latter from ABC. Hulu is available in many countries, but not all. If you live in Mexico, you won’t be able to watch Hulu if you try to use it directly. Below, you will find out why.

How to explain why Hulu content not fully available in Mexico

As it’s known, in order for the content of any platform to be available in a certain region, it must comply with the regulations established for it in this country. If the content of the platform doesn’t meet the requirements of regional laws, the content, or the platform itself, will be blocked. For this reason, a lot of content on Hulu remains inaccessible to people living in Mexico. Such restrictions exist because a country’s government may deem certain elements of the content provided by distributors unacceptable for viewing by its citizens. Distributors must therefore follow the rules set forth in their geolicense, and if the government deems it necessary, access to the content will be restricted. Distributors also have to follow those rules. They do it because if they break the rules, they might get in trouble with content owners and the region where they distribute it. That might lead to a situation where not only is the content not following the guidelines blocked, but they might also get prosecuted.

How to use VPN to watch blocked Hulu content in Mexico

As mentioned above, if you’re in Mexico, regional restrictions won’t allow you to view all the content available on Hulu. Therefore, if someone accesses Hulu from Mexico, he or she will only be able to access TV shows and movies that are allowed for that region. If going to another country to watch blocked content isn’t an option for you, then the best solution to this problem is to use a VPN. By following the steps below, you will be able to access Hulu in Mexico:

  1. Sign up and download any VPN app available to you.
  2. Login to your credit numbers and connect to the US server through the app
  3. Go to Hulu and watch previously blocked content from another part of the world.

If you can’t decide which program to use, try PureVPN. It’s a reliable application that will help you get what you want.
